Kazuchika Okada vs Hiroshi Tanahashi - NJPW 06/16/2012

Well, a good portion of this match has surfaced on the ol' Youtube. It features about 15 minutes of the 28 minute match. Not enough for a full review, but definitely worth checking out.

I can never get my head around the fact that Okada and Tanahashi garner so much hate from the IWC. Okada is very skilled at making every move count and has tons of character, and Tanahashi may be formulaic (always going the legs) but you can't deny his awesome face-in-peril segments.

Anyways, the match is fucking awesome from what I saw. The match cuts in as Tanahashi takes a sick bump to the outside. We get to see the last portion of Okada's control segment and near enough the entire finishing stretch. Okada is always going after Tana's neck and Tana is tries to defensively kick away Okada's knee. Add on top of that a super hot crowd and you got this match.

I really can't see myself going any lower than ★★★★ on this no matter how dull or shit the 13 minutes of missing footage is. I'm going to wait before giving an 'official' rating until I see the entire match, but this is most likely the best match from Japan I have seen all year.

Okada is pretty much loved from what I witness, way more than Tanahashi, but yeah, the eventual hate is ridiculous. I don't know how many times Tanahashi has proved already he's one the best in the world. The collection of great ****+ matches speaks for itself. And Okada is a breakout star of the year in the world, his short reign was awesome.

Tanahashi is a little overexposed, which is generally why "the IWC" ever "hates" any wrestler. but there's very few guys who could do what Tanahashi does and not get overexposed so while I think the criticisms of him are generally fair, I certainly don't think he's bad.

Spoiler for wXw FAN:
El Generico vs. Tommy End, The Sumerian Death Squad vs. RockSkillet and El Generico vs. Axel Tischer vs. Bad Bones vs. Karsten Beck were good matches about ***1/2 - ***3/4

Axel Tischer vs. Davey Richards and Bad Bones vs. Big Van Walter I liked even more. The first one a very good Indy Match and the second a strong battle in japanese style. ***3/4 - ****

RockSkillet vs. The Leaders Of The New School and Davey Richards vs. Zack Sabre Jr. were the highlights of the weekend for me. The Tag Match had a very slow start with a lot of grappling but the last five minutes were really insane. **** - ****1/4

Davey vs. Zack was as great as their match at 16 Carat 2011. ****1/4 - ****1/2

Story. Characters. Structure. Mind games. This match had all of those elements in high quantity, combine it with some great and stiff action, and you get a MOTYC, easily. This was perfect for 13 minutes only, and it's a shame their feud ended here, because with 4-5 more minutes, these two could reach five stars, IMO. Both guys played their characters to perfection. This is TNA's MOTY so far, it's slightly better than Angle/Hardy from Victory Road.
Rating: ****
Ok, so I watched this for the 3rd time last night, and I love it even more now, I'm bumping this to ****1/2. What an epic match! Remember, pro wrestling is all about storytelling, and this match had a shitload of it. There was a fantastic character-work, Aries took helluva beating, and you'll have to struggle really fucking hard to find such an effective Big Guy vs. Small Guy awesomeness of storytelling like in this one. This clash is a must-see material for all of you who appreciate small things and details in matches. When I watch this, I really want to see them wrestling again at BFG for the title, if they decide to make Storm/Roode non-title, of course. Anyway, this match is epic, it's in Top 3 in the world in 2012, and of the best matches in TNA history.

^ I'll have to watch this later , sounds right up my alley. Haven't seen much of Aries's TNA run but from what I seen I enjoyed it. Seen the very good title win against Roode and the fun X Title match with Shelly. Thinking of it I haven't seen much Bully Ray or any TNA at all. :/


Was just reading some DDT results and the ones from Beer Garden Day ~Haramshima Produce Day cought my eye.

Quote:
4. HARASHIMA defeated Hikaru Sato with a Cross Armbreaker (29:58).
- Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yakitori defeated Hiroshi Fukuda (c) (9:21 pm).
*Yakitori becomes the 947th champion.
- Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Yakitori (c) by eating it (9:21 pm).
*Ryuichi Sekine becomes the 948th champion.
- Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Beer defeated Ryuichi Sekine (c) (9:22 pm).
*Beer becomes the 949th champion.
- Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Gota Ihashi defeated Beer (c) by drinking it (9:23 pm).
*Gota Ihashi becomes the 950th champion.
- Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Hiroshi Fukuda defeated Gota Ihashi (c) with a Tambourine Attack (9:25 pm).
*Hiroshi Fukuda becomes the 951st champion.

Here's the explanation:

Quote:
At the end of the show, Ryuichi Sekine attacked the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion Hiroshi Fukuda while he was serving a try of yakitori chicken. When Fukuda was knocked out after a chop to the neck, a piece of the chicken fell on top of him, pinned him and became the new champion. Sekine ate the piece of chicken to win the belt by KO. He then celebrated with a can of beer but drank so much he collapsed. The can of beer landed on his chest and pinned Sekine to win the belt. Gota Ihashi then drank the can to win the title. Fukuda was back on his feet and attacked Ihashi. The champion kicked out of two pin attempts (which counts as successful title defences) but a tambourine to the back of the head finally put Ihashi out for the count. Fukuda made his escape as the champion once again.
I have too see this.

I love the Heavymetalweight stuff so much. No champion will ever be greater than "Ladder", though.

I will admit I am one of the most adamant Tanahashi haters ever, and have been for roughly 4 years. I just think his mannerisms and moveset are the lamest things in the world. It just seems to me that the end of most of his matches are just him soaking up his opponents offense and then hitting a bazillion slingblades and slingblade variations followed by a bazillion high fry frows and high fry frow variations. That along with the boring legwork every match, and I feel like if you have seen one Tana match, you've seen them all. The whole 'so many **** matches' thing doesn't work for me because I rarely rate his stuff that high.

But If I'm really honest, the only reason I hate Tanahashi is because Nakamura is ten times better and gets about 1 tenth of the credit.

DDT very rarely disappoints. Some guy has a bunch of the fantasias from this year posted on dailymotion so I've been catchin up a bit. I also suggest the Generico/kodoka tlc match from Union pro in January for the DDT Extreme title.

Shiozaki vs. Morishima rocked. Despite it being sloppy at two random times, I loved it. Shiozaki busting out with some Marufuji level shit was nuts at one point.
